"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

WILL WE SEE ANOTHER SENATE FILIBUSTER, THIS TIME OVER GUH CONTROL?
A letter from from Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) will arrive to the office of senate majority leader Harry Reid sometime today that warns opposition to any further gun control legislation.
“We will oppose the motion to proceed to any legislation that will serve as a vehicle for any additional gun restrictions,” the signed letter reads, according to a copy obtained by Politico. <-LINK
The Blaze reported this as well stating that the Senate could push a benign bill out of committee that would only limit magazine capacity and expand background checks, but once it comes out for general debate, amendments can be added to it making it much more ominous.
No one is actually saying they will filibuster, but the warning is pretty clear in that the opposing Senators have little other recourse.
